Courtesy: WagoWago Corporation's 750-658 I/O module links CAN field devices to the 750 Series Wago I/O system. The CAN Gateway module can be used with 750 Series PLCs or couplers, providing a gateway between a CAN network and other fieldbuses, (e.g., Ethernet or Profibus) leveraging the flexibility of the fieldbus independent Wago I/O system. The 750-658 supports CAN Layer 2, making it extremely flexible at the field level. The module can be integrated into a CANopen, SAE-J1939 or DeviceNet network by using CoDeSys function blocks.

The CAN I/O module offers users flexibility by providing the option for operation in one of three modes: sniffer mode, transparent mode or mapped mode.

  • Sniffer mode: The module performs a detailed analysis of the unaffected CAN bus through passive "snooping".
  • Transparent mode: The 750-658 becomes an active CAN subscriber, with the ability to send and receive CAN telegrams.
  • Mapped mode: The module is able to generate CAN telegrams directly from the process map, or to selectively copy process values from received telegrams into the input process map.

With GL marine and UL508 certifications, the 750-658 can be used for a number of possible applications including shipboard engine monitoring or connection to CANopen devices in a wind turbine.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
